Seth Meyers’ day-drinking adventures with Ina Garten in the clip below do not match the drunken enlightenment of his segment with Kelly Clarkson a few years ago* — there’s no singing here, for instance — but it is nevertheless a spectacular outing. Seth gets smashed, brings out a cake he made from Ina’s recipe (it’s bad), tries to write Happy Birthday on it (that’s worse), and at one point, drunkenly exclaims, “Can we not talk about Jeffrey!” alluding to the oft-referred husband on Ina Garten’s Barefoot Contessa (I’ve seen, like, one episode, and I feel like I know Jeffrey better than I know my own wife).
Also, this day-drinking escapade is decidedly one-sided. Seth does all the drinking, while Ina fabulously sips on a cocktail and gracefully indulges Seth’s passive-aggressive drunkenness. It’s spectacular.
* That was last year. Jesus, Trump years are so slow.
